About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Spacious home, 3400+ square foot, with amazing views of the meadow. Enjoy the morning light sitting at the breakfast nook while looking at the meadow or relax on the couch by the wood stove. Numerous windows throughout the house provide great light and an airy feel. The home is two stories with a game room, 4 full baths, 2 bedrooms, and 2 bunk rooms and a washer/dryer. Lots of space for comfort and privacy! The upstairs has an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining and living area. There are 2 separate dining tables that seat 6-8 each, plus a 6 stool island counter.

The floor plan of 3400+ square feet allows groups or multiple families to sleep comfortably. We have snowshoes, sleds and board games for your enjoyment. Kirkwood is a very dog friendly resort. We allow dogs IF they are potty trained and you take responsibility for your pet.

Kirkwood resort has lots to offer with some of the best skiing in California for beginners to experts due to its high elevation, great snow and varied terrain. The ski lifts are moments away. A free shuttle will take you from our driveway to the lifts and back again. 5K of groomed cross country ski trails are right outside the door in the meadow. 50K of cross country trails can be accessed at the x-country center which is a five minute walk. Other winter activities available are dog sledding, sledding and snow shoeing.

Kirkwood in the summer is an amazing place with lots of wildflowers, hiking and biking. Kirkwood offers lift assisted mountain biking on the slopes. Silver lake, Caples lake and Kirkwood lake are within minutes of our house for hours of swimming, fishing and boating. You can also enjoy horseback riding at Kirkwood stables. South Lake Tahoe is an easy 30 minute drive away.

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

March 20, 2016. We just arrived home from our 2nd stay in this amazing house! We spent the weekend there with a few families from our neighborhood. The house is extremely spacious but even with a large group it amazingly never felt crowded. There are plenty of beds and rooms for everyone if they need privacy. The kids all like to stay in the one large bunkroom off the kitchen, which we now all refer to as the 'orphanage room', in the most endearing way. The kitchen and living areas are great. Lots of appliances, dishes, cups and silverware. There are 2 large kitchen tables so you can feed lots of hungry people all at once. The game room downstairs is a great place to chill. There is a ping pong table and large screen TV. After our day on the slopes on Saturday, we came back to the house and the kids made a big sledding hill. There was so much snow they started at the kitchen window. Everyone had fun playing with the snowshoes and cross country skis. Some of our party did not want to ride the mountain on Sunday but stayed at the cabin and played with all the toys. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in Kirkwood.

Great cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house in Feb, 2014 and had a great experience. If you are looking for luxury, this is not for you, but if you are looking for family friendly cozy place it's great. The driveway down to the garage turned into sledding place and our kids had so much fun. The house is equipped with essentials and the shuttle comes right in front (up the driveway) and will take you right to the ski slope. We only had 2 adults and 3 kids, but it can sleep much more. The owner was so nice and responsive.

Highly recommend this place.

Excellent Kirkwood rental

  • 5 of 5

Highly enjoyed staying at this Kirkwood property with a group of 8. There was more than enough room and we got a kick out of the "party room" which can actually sleep 6 people! This place can easily house 14+ people if needed. It was very convenient to call the shuttle (was there within 2 minutes!) to get to the lifts in no time. The views were spectacular (could see cross country skiers speeding across the meadows) and the same trail was easily accessible for evening hikers. The kitchen had most everything that we needed in terms of appliances and cookware, and the wood stove kept us nice and toasty! I love Kirkwood and there's nothing better than to find a nice place to stay while up there!

Great place at Kirkwood for multi-family visits

  • 5 of 5

I love this place. We had three families together - 6 adults, 6 kids, and two dogs - and felt like we could have accommodated a fourth family if needed. The kids loved the bunk room and sledding in the back yard. The king bed in the master was incredibly comfortable. Game room down stairs is great. You call for the shuttle and they pull up to the end of the driveway in about 5-10 minutes. This was totally convenient. It's a bit too far to walk with your skis and nice that you don't have to drive your own car. All three families agreed we'd be back next year!

Perfect location for access to hiking trails and nearby lakes

  • 5 of 5

Our hiking group stayed at this home on West Meadow for four days. The listing was accurate regarding the location. We found the house to be well furnished, clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. It is in a convenient location for hiking and has a beautiful view of a meadow. It is dog friendly, too. All contacts with the owner were very helpful. We would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives.

Great location and all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to say I really enjoyed our families stay at the property. While I am no stranger to Kirkwood as a Mountain I have always been disappointed by the lack of places to stay. What is worse is that their are also limited onsite dining options so either you cook in or look to eat the same place every night. The beauty of this cabin was that it had a great kitchen with all the appliances and cookware to have all our meals at the house of 6 adults (with room to grow) and be within a mile to Chair 6. Having a true wood burning fireplace in the house added a sense of comfort.

The owner was very responsive and had constant communication before and after our say and really allowed us to rest easy knowing this would be the right place for us.

Only downside I can claim is that we could not get TV service, but when you have board games and some wine you can have great fun.
